History: Bee Pollen has been used in many cultures throughout history. In ancient times, Hippocrates and Pythagoras both prescribed Bee Pollen for its healing properties. In North America, Native Americans wore pouches containing pollen around their necks on long journeys. They would eat the pollen so they could sustain a high level of energy. The Chinese, Romans, and Egyptians all regarded pollen as a remedy for illness. In China, pollen was first described well over 2000 years ago as sweet tasting and neutral.
